Facial Contouring

We offer many different types of dermal filler products that can be used to contour and sculpt facial structure, as well as correct natural volume loss. These products can also be used to correct deep wrinkling that cannot be treated with Neurotoxins alone. As we age, the skin loses elasticity and volume in the mid-face region, resulting in sagging skin, and unwanted folds and shadows. Dermal fillers replace lost volume in a safe, non-surgical manner helping restore or enhance your natural features to provide a more youthful, rested look. Fillers are not just utilized for age related concerns, but can also be used to enhance your natural features including: cheeks, chin and nose.

Lip Enhancement​

At Syracuse Plastic Surgery, Jena Murphy, NP-C and Stacey Cook, PA, are known for their expertise in the use of dermal filler to enhance volume, define a sharp border, or correct asymmetry in the lips. Your provider will first consult with you prior to injection to determine the best product for you based on your individual goals and desired outcome. We only use the safest injectables made of Hyaluronic acid which is naturally found in your body. Topical numbing is utilized to keep our patients as comfortable as possible during treatment.

Corrective Treatment

Here at Syracuse Plastic Surgery we are experienced in seeing patients who have been injected elsewhere and are seeking corrective treatment. We offer a product, Hylenex, that is injected to dissolve unwanted filler. Patients may return for re-injection with filler as soon as 2 weeks after dissolving.

Pre and Post Treatment Instructions

  1. To combat potential bruising and swelling from fillers, we recommend using Arnica products starting three days prior to your injection. These products can be purchased topically or orally over the counter. Our office offers Silagen products which also include Arnica and Bromelain for added effect.
  2. One week prior to treatment, stop the use of over the counter products that can thin the blood (Aspirin, Motrin, Aleve, Ibuprofen). These medications may increase bruising and bleeding at injection site. If blood thinners are prescribed, do not stop use without authorization from your prescribing physician.
  3. Refrain from alcohol use two days prior to treatment.
  4. If possible do not apply makeup prior to your visit. For your safety, the treatment areas will be cleaned prior to injection.
  • Continue to avoid blood thinning products (Aspirin, Motrin, Aleve, Ibuprofen, etc.) for 48 hours after treatment. If any discomfort is experienced, Tylenol (Acetaminophen) may be used as directed.
  • Do not massage the areas that have been injected, even if you feel lumps or bumps 3 days after injection, these are most likely swelling. If after 3 days, you see lumps or bumps please call our office for instruction on proper massage.
  • Do not drink alcohol for 12 hours.
  • If bruising occurs you may lightly apply an ice-pack.

While fillers are commonly used and are extremely safe, they are not without possible side effects, which include but are not limited to lumps, tissue reaction, visibility, bruising, and swelling. Many of these issues resolve quickly without treatment, but if you have questions or concerns please call our office at (315)299-5313.
